Oh yeah, we all know how credible Wiki is! Larry the Cable Guy types could write articles there, and people like you would still say it has validity. Get a life.

Hey clueless: check the real estate values of Punta Gorda vs. Indy. I think you will see where the $500k comes from. Indy is a toilet compared to Punta Gorda.

Wiki can name it's sources....can you? Punta Gorda is an over grown retirement village where white trash go to hide from the winter.

And about the 500k is that home value or net worth? because if it is networth --- big F'ing deal, anyone that owns a home, a car, and a 401k can top that networth, if it's home value... again ---big F'ing deal. You must have been hanging out on the westside of indy..........

crawl back to your trailer park and open a cold can of Pabst....

Judging by your past contributions to this forum,if you're indeed,acquainted with this woman and defending her,you're doing more harm than good.
Maybe because she's HUMAN?

By the way, seeing is not always believing.. No one in the public has seen the tape, so I'm reserving judgment.

Being a former student of this teacher, I can honestly say that she is one of the few good teachers left. When my life was going down the drain and I was having family trouble, she was the one person there that I could always turn to. She was the person who made me want to be a teacher. However, I then looked around Shelbyville High School and saw the lack of respect and the total apathetic nature of the students surrounding me. I decided not to be a teacher, because I knew that I would not be able to handle the total disrespect of the students. It's a sad state of affairs when the students there honestly don't want to be there and fall asleep, don't pay attention in class, or make a fool of themselves in another way, and we still judge our teachers by the test scores. Instead of letting the children stay up till the wee hours of the morning, letting them go party and drink and have unprotected sex with numerous partners, why don't the parents actually teach their children the meaning of discipline, respect, and authority. Our society might benefit for a change. My heart goes out to Mrs. Jewell. I will always respect her, as a woman, a friend, and as a teacher.
I am so looking forward to having your future children in class.:-)

I usually support teachers. I mean where would our kids be with teachers? And I know they must get so tired of the disrespectful bad mannered children of this generation! But no one has a right to kick a child. A teacher should have a better way to deal with anger!

An accident? Are you joking? If a teacher can't handle her job, she should quit! It does not matter if a student is sleeping or screaming....a teacher should not strike a student for any reason.
Disruptive students should be removed. A sleeping student isn't disruptive. They are only taking up space. If a student sleeps in class on a regular basis, they should be placed in an alternative classroom. The student and family should be issued a two warnings prior to removal. There is no reason matters like this can't be addressed in a professional and civil manner.
I can't believe all the obnoxious posts supporting this teacher.
You are the type of parent that has the obnoxious kid in class. People like you should be sterilized.

My home schooled daughter graduated last June from IUPUI with a 3.85 GPA and never spent one minute in a public school. Meanwhile my home schooled 24 year old son did dropped out of college the first year and went to work as the LAN administrator for the Indiana National Guard. For the last 3 years he has made $50,000 + a year. Meanwhile my younger son is in his first year of college and has a 3.5+ GPA. So I guess you now know people who didn't do poorly in their first year of college.

Is "odd' defined as putting education above basketball? Classrooms before swimming pools? Not being a follower so they probably won't fit in on the production line? Believing in God rather than MTV? Being able to differentiate between right and wrong? Respecting their elders and their parents? Expecting people to be responsible for their own actions rather than blaming it on society? Need I go on?

It is a little obvious who the obnoxious parent and or teacher is. What a terrible example you must set. Children should not be hit or kicked by their teachers. If a teacher is compelled to resort to violence she should be removed from any employment involving children. She should be required to see a therapist for her anger issues. You may want to consider getting help. Your response suggests you have issues.

Your responses have been confrontational and extremely odd. Your social skills don't seem to be very developed.

i am sure the student had more to do with the altercation than the teacher did. students tend to make more out of a situation than what needs to happen. turning one thing into another. "nearly knocking her down" - good way to play up enthusiasm.

While I totally agree that the child should not have been acting up in class, I also agree that the teacher should not have kicked the student. However, everyone that is on here saying it is the child's fault she got kicked, is obviously not the child's parents.

Can you honestly say that if it were your child, no matter how badly they were behaving, you would side with the "poor overworked, underpaid" teacher. I think if it were your child, you would change sides quickly.

Yes, you do seem like a freak. No reason to act like such a jerk.
